Istanbul, Turkey!

Hey guys. As promised on my instagram {@threadmuse} page, here are a few pictures from my recent trip to Istanbul. It was winter and the temperature was mostly an average of 5 degrees C. There wasn't any snow but as sunny as it may look on the pictures, it was rather cold. 

To start off, you can't go to Turkey and not try out their delicious Turkish delights sweets.
Bitings. The food in  Turkey was simply amazing! I think I had enough shawarma's to last me a while!
 A lot of graffiti on Taksim Street.
Handmade bag made with a traditional cloth. The art of haggling..
Cape- Toi Market | Sweater- Istanbul | Jeans- Toi Market | Earrings- 4U2

Beautiful fridge magnets.
 The evil eye. {To keep bad karma away}
Little purses.
 Bedecked lamps.
 Stunning boots.
 The famous Turkish rugs.
 Hagia Sophia Museum
 And finally the Blue Mosque.

Top 5 Suggestions:

1. Visit the Hagia Sophia Museum {or any other historical/ cultural site}
2. Enjoy their local cuisine {Shawama, Bread, Kebabs etc.}
3. Shop in Taksim {From clothes to electronics and much more}
4. Take a boat ride to the Asian/ European side that way you get to be in two continents at one go!
5. Buy a souvenir! You will definitely be spoilt for choice. {E.g. fridge magnets, purses, mugs etc.}

Have a productive week ahead!

  7. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
